Requests for repeat prescriptions for regular monthly medication that have previously been authorised by a doctor can be made in one of the following ways :
Prescriptions will be ready for collection 48hrs after ordering (excluding weekends and bank holidays). Please do not request medication which has not previously been authorised for repeat by a doctor. You will need to periodically see a doctor to review your medication and this will be shown on your re-order slip.
Some local chemists offer a collection and delivery service for patients who are not able to use our dispensary. Please let us know when you order you prescription if you require this service.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website

Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
